Company to launch Monday a package of database management tools for managing complex databases across the enterprise.

Embarcadero Technologies Inc. on Monday will launch DBArtisan Workbench, a package of database management tools for managing complex databases across the enterprise. DBArtisan Workbench combines the San Francisco companys flagship database management software, DBArtisan 7.2, with a gaggle of new Analyst tools to get higher availability, performance and security out of Oracle Corp., Sybase Inc., Microsoft Corp. and IBM databases. Embarcadero Space Analyst provides diagnostic and reorganization capabilities to resolve storage bottlenecks.
To help DBAs (database administrators) track database usage, DBArtisan Workbench ships with Embarcadero Capacity Analyst. Capacity Analyst also does trend analysis and forecasts future database needs.
The final Analyst tool, Embarcadero Performance Analyst, pinpoints performance problems that threaten availability or response time. The Analyst tools only support Oracle databases now, with support for other platforms in the works. DBArtisan Workbench also packs a tool, Embarcadero SQL Profiler, for historical analysis and optimization of PL/SQL code. Also included is Embarcadero SQL Debugger, a tool that enables one-click debugging of cross-platform programmable objects as they are executed in the database. DBArtisan Workbench is available immediately, priced starting at $5,495.
